Bengals Draft Trivia

With Bull and Seubs quizzing people on Bengals draft history on this week’s podcast, I thought it would be fun to throw out a Bengals draft question of my own and see if anyone can figure out what player I am referring to. Post your comments if you think you know the answer.
Clues:

The player played college football in the Big Ten.
He was compared to ice cream by his position coach when drafted.
He was with the Bengals for five years.
He finished fourth in Heisman voting his senior year.
He was often injured.
The Bengals traded back twice in the draft before selecting him.
He had 4 total touchdowns in his career.
The player we passed on at the same position has over 10,000 yards from scrimmage and 54 touchdowns.

Can you name the player? I will post the answer tonight if nobody guesses it.

      Great job Lee. You nailed it. If only Stephen Jackson had been our flavor of running back!

        Yea, unfortunately the bengals have made a habit over the years of taking the wrong guy with their pick. Hey maybe you guys could do an article illustrating over the last 20 years who the bengals have picked and who they could of had at that pick. Might be interesting to see who some of the guys we could have had on our team.
